Ever have that happen? Its a bugger to get set back into the dash! I found a way though. Tried fingers- did not work, tried fishing line to fish it out- didn't work. Thought a small suction cup to paste on the face would work- no. So, I picked up one of those 3M picture hangers- the ones with the tape that can come off the wall? So, I put it together and pasted it on the face of the clock inside the dash. I already called the Toyota dealer and they thought the whole dashboard would have to come out. Well the picture hanger has a hook on it just big enough for a finger or a screw driver or whatever. And the tape covers the whole face so it held great. Now I get it back up to where it sits and... It wont hold in place! It was then I saw the right side was about 1/4 inch back so I moved it around and put the right side in first and BINGO! it is back in place! A $2 part instead of 4 hours and $175 at the dealer. If you find yourself in the same situation- do the same thing and save yourself a good deal of cash!

Welcome!

OK, stupid question time...
What dashboard clock? I have a 2009, and I don't have one. Is it a dealer add-on or year specific option?

Oh and good job getting it back where it needs to be! If mine ever fell in (which it probably won't, see stupid question above), the tip would come in handy.

I find it hard to believe you don't have one

One of these days you'll be driving along and FJ clock is going to be like "hey there" and you are going to scream like a girl because it was RIGHT THERE the entire time :lol:
Guess what?
Aaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh (my little girl scream...)

WTF was I thinking? For some reason I pictured a clock set in next to the fuel, temp, and battery gauges. I completely brain farted the digital clock above the stereo. When I headed home after work, there it was staring at me.:bangin:

Move on everyone, nothing to see here...

This was the first mod I did to my FJ. I swapped the dash clock out for one of these.
